I've moved this to Football (soccer) as it seems from the old discussion that the previous title, Association football (soccer), was an error that couldn't be corrected because no-one involved and willing (back in 2008!) had administrator rights. I think this is best since otherwise 'association' and 'soccer' are repetitive. John Stephenson (talk) 15:58, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
